Service Disabled Veteran Owned Business Certification/Set Asides

Exit Ceremony with Flags

To protect our veterans, their families, and survivors who have veteran-owned small businesses (VOSB), President Obama signed the Veterans Small Business Verification Act contained in the Veterans Benefits Act of 2010 on October 13, 2010.

The Veterans Small Business Verification Act expands the Veterans Administration’s requirement to verify business status as owned and operated by veterans, service-disabled veterans, or eligible surviving spouses.
